But a dev coming to a site that exists to look at games critically, and publicly criticising their criticism (again) is a tad, awkward.

What the hell are you talking about, he couldn't have said it more matter-of-factly. So far you have been the only negative person on this thread.

1992 - Super Mario Bros.

1993 - Super Mario Bros. 3

1997 - Super Mario 64

1998 - Ocarina of Time

2000 - Deus Ex

That's the chronology of my favourite game. Nothing has topped Deus Ex yet. Maybe when they make a similar game for the Rift.

85 and I feel like I'm pretty close to the end.

Kinda shady since GOG and Steam are selling many of these games.

Thief. I actually liked the gameplay but the world, story and characters were significant downgrade from the previous Thief games.

The Banner Saga is the clear standout this year for me.

For whatever reason I had no idea that Peace Walker was, like, a proper good-lengthed Metal Gear game. Perhaps it was the previous PSP MGS games that threw me or something, compounded by my general unfamiliarity with the series I suppose, but I assumed it was some weird spin-off not-MGS game. I suppose I should probably just buy one of the various HD collections and finally play these for myself.

From what I understand, even Portable Ops has a fair bit of story meat to it – Peace Walker’s initial setup more-or-less assumes you know what happened in Portable Ops (which I didn’t). To my knowledge Ac!d, Ac!d 2, and Portable Ops Plus aren’t canon.

Actually Portable Ops' canon status is complicated:
